Israel: Netanyahu unveils 'Trump Heights' in occupied Golan Heights

Syrian Arab Republic, Golan Heights
June 16, 2019 at 19:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

A new Jewish settlement named after the US President Donald Trump was inaugurated in the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights on Sunday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman were among those unveiling the plaque bearing the name "Trump Heights" in the inauguration ceremony.

Prior to the unveiling ceremony, Netanyahu had once again praised Trump for his decision to recognise Israel's sovereignty over the illegally occupied Golan Heights region in Syria.

"He is the first international leader who did it, he simply tore the mask, or, tore the mask off the whole screen of hypocrisy which doesn't recognise the obvious," said the Israeli Prime Minister.

Netanyahu also commended Trump for his recent warmongering rhetoric on Iran, praising the US President for backing out of the Iran Nuclear deal and flaring up new tensions by blaming Iran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday.
